Miliarakis Winery started to vinify local varieties in the early 1930s in Peza, Crete. One of the most important wineries in the Cretan wine business, works with dedication on both local and international varieties, bringing out the Cretan wine.
Red Turtle is a classic GSM blend, just as they make it in Rhone, France, from the Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre varieties that are fully acclimated to the Cretan climate.
The vines are cultivated in the Turtle Vineyard, about 500 meters altitude, which provides a freshness to the wine.
Crimson color, aromas of red fruits and blackberries and subtle sense of barrel in the nose.
Velvety and rich on the palate, with refreshing acidity which is leading up, along with its round and beautifully integrated tannins, to its future course.
Ages for at least five years after harvest and pairs great with veal tagliata with pepper sauce.
